    I would guess at about 5 bags sand and 1.5 cement ... it will depend on how good you are and whether you fill joint fully! And also whether it is 1 brick high and 160 long, or 10 high 16 long ...

    Don't forget some plasticiser.

    Both beds are different lengths...
    Bed A = 95 BRICKS
    Bed B = 70 BRICKS.
    5 bricks high each bed...
